Vintage EV-9D9 Figure by Kenner

August 17, 2011

EV-9D9, you may recall, was the robot that assigned C-3PO and R2-D2 their jobs upon their arrival at Jabba’s palace. Richard Marquand (director of Return of the Jedi), apparently voiced “her” in preproduction, but I believe this was overdubbed in the actual movie. Yeardly Smith (aka Lisa Simpson) provided the voice in the radio play.

This is one of the “last 17” figures and as such is relatively sought-after. Loose versions can sell for as much as $50, with carded versions going into the hundreds. This is actually the one that came with my Jabba the Hutt Dungeon Action Playset, but it’s the same as the carded version.

Although the figure has no accessories, it does have one unique feature — a movable mouth. I don’t think any of the other vintage figures have anything quite like it. You move a lever in the back of the head to move the mouth.

    The moving mouth is an interesting feature. Was this feature included in any other figure?

    I never realized EV9D9 was a fembot

    They go into the hundreds loose. Carded figures generate retarded prices.

      Yes prices on a lot of vintage figures have skyrocketed in the years since I wrote this
